Darn it, you're right. The sad thing is, I thought I'd checked its release date, too.

I'll try again.

The Pretenders - "Talk of the Town" (1981. ha!)
(except it's not that upbeat :/)


Pretenders Talk Of The Town - YouTube


The Primitives - "Crash" (Official Video) (1988)


The Primitives | Crash (Official Video) - YouTube


And for an excellent example of what song production must do, compare the fixed-up version of "Crash" above with this live performance below:

The Primitives - "Crash" (live)
I...I was disappointed by Tracy's singing. The vocals sounded so...so...wimpy and unenergetic. And not even quite in tune!


The Primitives - Crash (Live) - YouTube

^ On second thought, maybe these aren't rock. I don't know. Shoot. (Checking.) Ack! The Primitives are indie pop. Sorry!! E for Effort, Eh?

I never heard of The Primitives before. (I can't say I liked that song.) The Pretenders definitely are rock. I'd pick "Message of Love" as better, though.

To me, one of the best early-80's pure upbeat rock songs is "Gimme All Your Lovin'," by ZZ Top.

How about this one? Upbeat pure rock, first released in 1980. Nice guitar work (I actually like the solo; usually I don't like guitar solos in rock music). Catchy lyrics. Nice rhyming, too.

I was amused reading this comment about the song on Song Meanings at Songfacts: "Johnson came up with the line 'She was a fast machine, she kept her motor clean' when he realized that cars and women were very much alike - they go fast, let you down, but then make you happy again when you see the new model. AC/DC has never been known for deep, meaningful lyrics."

AC/DC - "You Shook Me All Night Long"

During this video, what mostly caught my attention was that...hey...there's a guy wearing shorts!! He plays funny. And then I thought...wait, is that a woman?! Next I thought...maybe it *is* a woman! Maybe all this time AC/DC has had a female member and I just didn't know!!

Then I noticed...oh no...her guitar isn't plugged in. She's just a prop!!!!!! <--This was a disappointing moment.

Yet after watching the video again (and again), I decided that the person looks like a guy after all (because she didn't look very pretty). I wondered...is...is this a man dressed like a woman? Or a little school boy? I'm confused!

Finally, after looking at some photos of AC/DC, I realized that this is Angus Young and wearing shorts on stage is just his thing. I didn't expect AC/DC to have any quirky element, so this was a pleasant surprise. Now I like the song even more than before.

Hrrm, speaking from under her rock again. Anyway, that reminds me of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck," which is similarly lyrically and in my opinion one of the best upbeat no-special-instruments rock tracks ever (and also from stripped-down 1990). The guitar and drums on it are terrific.

I think that may be a generalization.
